Barça is fully involved in the fight for the titles, and on its way to the end of the year it must make an important sprint. Ernesto Valverde is worried about the obstacle that has become the November international break
The FC Barcelona looks for his best version in LaLiga and the Champions, and has to litigate against a calendar that in brief will go up the requirement to the maximum. In the last weeks, the Catalans attained to tie up the leadership in both competitions, but in the next will have to answer with solidity to a so intense examination as complicated that appears on the way to final of year. The battle by the titles does not go to give respite.
Ernesto Valverde is concerned by the wear that can suppose the stop of selections of November, an usual problem in the City Condal but that has special importance of face to what is for coming. In October, between injuries, sanctions and agreements with some stars, could prepare calmly the meetings that appeared after the international commitments, but now could go back to remain in picture.

This supposes to combine each Saturday or Sunday with a Tuesday or Wednesday, and the list of rivals is a sufficient warning.

The technician and his team try to prepare with antelación a plan that allow them keep in the senda of the victories, and that happens, yes or yes, by atinar in the challenges that arrive before the stop. Between trainings, rests and rotations, the triumphs against Real Valladolid (home), Raise (was), Slavia of Prague (home) and Celtic of Vigo (home) have turned into almost an obligation for the square barcelonista.
In this preparation would be key that the Barça obtained a gesture of some of his players. To Luis Suárez, Leo Messi or Arthur, for example, expect them friendly with trips of tens of thousands of kilometres, and the two veterans could pactar with his respective federations to be freed and centre in the obligations of the club. In these circumstances, any help will be welcome.
The Barça wants to go up his level what before
This sprint to 2020 appears, precisely, after a meeting of the changing room, that looks for a reaction that allow him reencontrarse with his best level. The staff finish notably disappointed in spite of winning to the Slavia of Prague, because the image was not the suitable and the suffering was the main note of a party in which the fortune and Marc-André ter Stegen had a contribution determinant. Now the Barça confronts to a key proof for the future of the campaign, and expects to be to the height.
